“Mathieu had a surgery on his right shoulder following the injury on Sunday. It’s very unfortunate for Mathieu, it’s unbelievable because he’s had two surgeries in the same season,” Wenger said.
“He just came back, he played seven games and he’s out again. I count three months out for Mathieu because contact will be a problem for the shoulder.”
The news will come as an extra blow after Wenger also revealed that Danny Welbeck is still not ready to return while Kieran Gibbs faces a late fitness test.
